The library is dedicated to providing our community with healthy food options. Our after school snack program gives hundreds of children a month fresh fruits and juice. Our annual food drive helps to fill the local food pantry with quality canned goods. The bookmobile has been used for meals at home programs.
Yes, with all the health awareness that we do, of course we know about the flesh eating bacteria in the vending machines. We are not afraid.
When we put the vending machines in the lobby, one for cold drinks and one for snacks, we were dedicated to having the best items in it. We cannot lie, the decision was made out of spite because people were bringing in food from the gas station next door and we won't let those petroleum peddlers win at anything.
Plus it was easier to say "we allow food, like snacks, like the ones from the vending machines downstairs, not the spread of fried chicken, pizza, and tuna salad you seem to be assaulting us with."
But you want to hear about the flesh eating bacteria. Of course you do.
The simple answer is: "the library does not fill the vending machines." We contract that out to the owner of the machines, Dead Flowers Inc. At the end of the month, full disclosure, we split the profits. Early on, plans were made at what type of products would end up in the machines.
The owner of Dead Flowers Inc, Mr. Randy Detailia, claimed he would use known products such as popular candy bars and sodas, as well as personal items he and his wife make over on Simple Plant Lane. It's the house with the red roof. So pretty.
Since making that promise, Mr. Detailia and Dead Flowers Inc. have fulfilled their end of the bargain. Their quality "Oat Bars" and "Blocks of Oat n Stuff" are a hit with staff. Recently, we did notice bottles with labels of masking tape saying "Flesh Eating Bacteria." We thought Mr. Detailia was trying something different.
Turns out the Center for Disease Control agrees, but not the way you would think.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Randy Detailia, please contact authorities. He is about five six with brown hair, and green eyes. He may be going by the alias "Juan Carlo." Please do not contact his wife as they are recently divorced.
